Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Attendance and Discipline Referrals. It needs to be at least 1250 words. This attitude is a natural one as it takes much effort and time to form any permanent shape whether of plaster of Paris or metal.
Keeping in perspective the natural inclination of a child to adopt a disciplined lifestyle, this paper will focus on the issue of absenteeism and discipline referrals in students with disabilities. It is found that in schools 40% of students follow a regular and upward trend of absenteeism. Most of these students are primary class students who show resistance in going to school daily and punctually reaching there on time. Likewise, special students tend to show a higher level of resistance to attend school than a normal children. This paper, therefore, will focus on the influence of absenteeism and discipline referrals on the academic achievement of special students to understand the factors that greatly attract them towards absenteeism.
Johnson and Lampley (2010) undertook research to examine LISTEN (Linking Individual Students to Educational Needs) which is the mentoring program used at schools for identification of students at risk. The study adopted an examination of LISTEN to evaluate its performance objectives and outcomes. LISTEN being a school program was sponsored by the district of East Tennessee to provide mentoring services to the students who need it the most. Johnson and Lampley (2010) took hold of the academic data from 2003-2005 to determine the post-implementation effects of LISTEN on the grade 6 to 8 students. The study in detail focused on the relationship of discipline referrals, GPAs, and attendance records of the students at risk. The study found that there was a clear difference between the rates of attendance, discipline referrals, and GPAs in pre and post-implementation of LISTEN. This means that the students who are at risk need a mentoring program that can help them resolve the problem of absenteeism and discipline referrals which eventually leads to improved GPAs.
Sowell (2012) undertook a study to evaluate the relationship between school uniforms with school attendance, achievement, and discipline. The study used a causal and comparative study research design to determine the relationship.
